The case measures 28mm in diameter excluding the signed Rolex Oyster winding crown with the overall length including the stepped lugs is 33mm. The screw case back is signed ‘ROLEX WATCH Co.

The case and lugs have a highly polished finish making this watch a real stand out piece.
The original gold plate on stainless steel Fixo-Flex jubilee folded link bracelet is in excellent condition and very much suits this design of watch. The bracelet will fit an 18cm wrist or can be adjusted down in the clasp.
